Outstanding P. Merrill 1/2in Socket Mortise Chisel.
This is a heavy-duty mortise chisel in fantastic condition. The blade is stout, laminated, and very sharp. It's been lapped and honed and is ready to go. It's 14+in long overall.

Very Early Ogee Molding Plane.
This plane is marked "W. CLARK" on the toe. This mark does not appear in either Goodman's guide to British planemakers, nor in Elliot's guide to American makers.

There are deep flat gouge cuts at the transition points of the step. The step itself is concave. It's a well-made plane and in decent enough condition considering its age.
